Lara Dutta shares priceless throwback photo with Priyanka Chopra and Dia Mirza
2000 was a special year for India. All three Miss India winners - Lara Dutta, Priyanka Chopra and Dia Mirza - went on to win the most prestigious international beauty pageants as well. While Lara won the Miss Universe title, Priyanka and Dia were crowned Miss World and Miss Asia Pacific, respectively.
Nineteen years after the legendary win, Lara took to Instagram to share a priceless throwback picture with Priyanka and Dia. She congratulated On Cue Productions for successfully managing the Miss India pageant for two and a half decades.
"You guys are THE ABSOLUTE BEST and none of our journeys would have been possible or successful without that perfect first step with you'll !!! Wishing you many many more milestones and success!!!" Lara wrote.
Lara made her Bollywood debut in 2003 with Andaaz, in which she was paired opposite Akshay Kumar. She was last seen on the big screen in last year's Welcome To New York, which was a dud at the box office.
Priyanka made her foray into Bollywood with The Hero: Love Story of a Spy, alongside Sunny Deol and Preity Zinta. The actress, who has been making great strides in the West, is all set to return to home turf with The Sky Is Pink, which will release in October this year.
Dia was launched opposite R Madhavan in Rehnaa Hai Terre Dil Mein. She was last seen on the big screen as Maanayata Dutt in Sanju.
